KidSport Northumberland would like to thank the Port Hope Lawn Bowling Club for their very generous donation of $5,890 (WOW!!!). This donation will ensure at least 20 under-resourced kids from the Northumberland community will be off the sidelines and into the game for a season of sport.
The Port Hope Lawn Bowling Club has been a true advocate for sport and recreation locally in Port Hope since 1900. Due to decreasing club membership, the remaining members decided it was time to close down and look for ways to continue their legacy of sport and community through legacy donations. KidSport Northumberland was very fortunate to be 1 of 6 local beneficiaries.
Barbra Gard (treasurer of the Port Hope Lawn Bowling Club) shared that "it was important for the group to donate to local charities that would help improve our community and continue the legacy of Port Hope Lawn Bowling Club’s love for sport, wellness, and healthy active living."
KidSport Northumberland is one of the 20 KidSport Ontario local chapter that provides financial support toward registration and/or equipment costs for youth in the Northumberland community to participate in organized sport programs. Did you know that 1 in 3 Canadian families can’t afford the costs associated with organized sport and physical activity?! Help us ensure no child is left on the sidelines, donate today! So ALL Kids Can Play!
